I love the smell of vindication in the morning...

... smells like... VICTORY!!!

Hoho! It's never too early to pop the champagne corks for this kind of news! Okay, so that's two (2) NON-freeped polls that say the majority of Canadians support Morgentaler's induction to the Order of Canada. Can we get a little ShutTheFuckUp from the fetus fetishists now please?

As Scott points out, what this shows is that the "widespread outrage" over the appointment that was being claimed by anti-choicers is largely being generated by a small but vocal and well-organized minority.

It's true -- anti-choicers have been feverishly freeping every online poll on this subject in order to prove some kind of point. While I'll cast a vote in an internet poll, I never bother with counter-freeping and I'm sure most other pro-choicers are the same way. It's a pointless exercise: who cares what internet polls say when they're so imminently manipulable? And when you've got real poll results on your side, hell yeah, let them freep away!
